Boys and girls, Full Time Hobby will release a cover compilation album of late great folk singer Tim Hardin - it's out on 28th of January 2013. We made a song for the album as well in a collaboration with great great Nils Gröndahl.
Reason To Believe – The Songs of Tim Hardin
Released 28th January 2013 on Full Time Hobby
Acclaimed Oregon troubadour Tim Hardin is one of the most influential and respected singer-songwriters of all time, not that the man himself cared much for the title. "My songs aren't personal," he insisted before his death in 1980. "They sound it 'cos it was me who revealed them, but it was my head that got the lightning shot through it.” An interesting choice of descriptive, seeing as how for his many devotees, his bewitching folk music has the same knockout power as a ten thousand volt lightning strike from the sky – instantaneous, bruising, beautiful, electrifying.
Among those devotees are some of the most exciting alternative voices of the last fifty years – like Nick Drake and Tim Buckley before him, Hardin was a musicians' musician, the inspiration behind a great many artists whose limelight he never procured for himself. Johnny Cash, Paul Weller, Rod Stewart, Echo and the Bunnymen, Scott Walker, Nico... Hardin's music has been covered by countless icons of contemporary counter-culture. Now that tradition is set to continue with the release of Reason To Believe, a tribute album collecting specially recorded cover versions from the impressive likes of Screaming Trees legend Mark Lanegan, the beguiling Hannah Peel, indie favourites Okkervil River and many more.
“So many people's entry point to Tim has been through cover versions,”says Full Time Hobby co-owner Nigel Adams, responsible for the release. “It felt fitting to bring his songs up to date with contemporary artists approaching his music with the hope listeners would then go beyond the well known and dig into some of the wealth of songs he wrote and recorded”. The album comes as a sequel of sorts to the label's 2006 release,Dream Brother: The Songs of Tim and Jeff Buckley, and is the next in a gradual series of releases that puts the spotlight on artists whose impact was more profound than their fame would suggest, whose names may have drifted into obscurity but continue to burn brightly in the hearts and record collections of many music lovers.
But Reason To Believe is more than an opportunity to pay lip service to one of the most gifted and overlooked talents in generations, with its artists (in the true spirit of Hardin) getting creative with the songs. The record begins with Wellington cinematic-pop types The Phoenix Foundation and a dazzling reworking of ‘Don't Make Promises You Can't Keep’, the '60s groove and strummed guitar of Hardin's original replaced by a tsunami wash of post-rock pianos and airy vocals. From there, the good times keep tumbling. Sam Gender's Diagrams turn the tender ‘Part Of The Wind’ into an electronics epic guided by 16-bit bleeps and ghostly synths, while Smoke Fairies offer a broody, smokey, intense take on ‘If I Were A Carpenter’ that burrows its way into your psyche.
With artwork by Jack White's former collaborator Miles Johnson at Third Man Records and extensive linear notes by Rockbackpages music critic and highly respected author Barney Hoskyns, Reason To Believe is too good to miss.
Check it out, we're playing on the 30th of November and the 1st of December:
We did this video for Cyborg Manifesto. Enjoy.
Listen to the songs 'Tin Can Valley' and 'To Kill A Mockingbird' on their site. And check out the videos of Michael Gira while you're there - and other good acts as well..
We play a line of concerts in December. Hope to see you there, somewhere:
We jus came back from a brilliant small tour playing End Of The Road Festival i Dorset, UK. It's an amazing festival. And we had a fun time playing there as well.
Check out a clip from the set:
On the same note, webzine The Monitors chose Pinkunoizu as band of the week this week after having seen the gig on EOTR. Thanks for that:
We play the annual and fantastic Vadestedsfestival this coming Friday at Christiania, Copenhagen.
It'll be a rare duo-set with brand new songs never played before (and almost never rehearsed before).
The festival is both August 24 and 25.
We play at 5 PM on the 24th.
See you there!
Take a listen to some live recordings from Simon Raymonde's (ex-Cocteau Twins, Bella Union founder) 'Amazing Sessions'. Here.
On there are:
Everything Is Broken Or Stolen
New song #1
New Song #2
The people over at The 405 chose Free Time for their first edition of their Recommender:
"I'll enjoy any album that breaks down into a cacophony of noise several times throughout its duration. It'd be easy to overlook a band like Pinkunoizu, a Danish quartet with little following in Europe, but Free Time is awash with feelgood-ery and fun. My musical highlight of the year so far was probably the first time I listened to album closer 'Somber Ground'."
We play End Of The Road Festival on the 2nd of September
The lovely chaps at Geertuida recorded the concert there. Take a look.
'Free Time!' receives a bunch of uplifting words from Danish prime music journalist Ralf Christensen. Read his article on some newer Danish releases here on Information's site.
"Den danske kvartet Pinkunoizu albumdebuterer med det frygtløse og fremragende Free Time! Med en frit fabulerende globaliseret indierock med tentakler langt ud i den store vide verden. Det giver en fornemmelse af at glide på en flod gennem syrede, uskyldsbetonede landskaber, hvor oprindelige kulturer foretager hellige stammeritualer, og fantasiskabninger vrider sig i sære mønstre. Alt i mens bandet fastholder en form for rockskrue i vandet – og synger beroligende til os.
En form for dobbelt ambient rock, hvor Pinkunoizu både formår at rumme lytteren og samtidig alskens ideer og etnicitet. Frit flydende og vederkvægende kreativitet." - Ralf Christensen
better take a good long listen to these two brilliant turntable mashup mixtapes, featuring all sorts of delicioius stuff (including Pinkunoizu), warped and morphed together in new and exciting ways.
So we just came back from our April tour. It's been a rough travel for a rare thing, and we wanna say thanks to all who came out to listen to our music. Some people filmed the concerts. Here are a couple of clips.
LIVEMUSIC.FM SESSION - "TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD"
